This Government has been clear there should be no safe space online for terrorists and their supporters to radicalise, recruit, incite, or inspire.
The dedicated police Counter Terrorism Internet Referral Unit (CTIRU) refers content that they assess as contravening UK terrorism legislation to industry. To date, the CTIRU have secured the removal of over 300,000 pieces of terrorist content, including right wing terrorist content.
We are also working closely with industry, including through the Global Internet Forum to Counter Terrorism, to encourage them to develop innovative solutions to tackle terrorist use of the internet. Social media platforms regularly publish transparency reports, which outline their continuing efforts to remove and restrict access to harmful content on their platforms. While these publications do not distinguish between content produced by different terrorist groups, we continue to seek further detail on the breakdown of content in future reports.
